This forum site is built on the discourse engine, which runs on ruby on rails. It’s fast and easy to use, sports a lot of features. Here are a couple that you may want to explore (click the cog under your profile):
- You can change the theme from the default dark to light. Many like the light better. Find under Preferences/Interface
- Change the default Home Page. ‘New’ or ‘Unread’, instead of the default ‘Latest’ are popular. Find under Preferences/Interface.
- Notifications on posts in email. Every person has a different preference. Set-up yours under Preferences/Emails.
- Create a rich profile with a background and information under Preferences/Profile.
